Cut Flowers

Ever wonder how florists get their flowers to last so long? Here’s a few tips that will help you to keep your cut flowers longer. Pick fresh young blooms just as they open whenever possible. The ideal here is to pick blossoms freshened with morning dew; next best is early evening.

But this ideal time to pick is highly dependent on the day. The idea is to cut blooms with the highest levels of moisture and water-borne minerals retained in the stems. For this reason commercial growers will sometimes liquid feed a crop the day before harvesting the cut flowers.
